    Are you serious? Corey Brewer is miles ahead of Green.
    I've seen Brewer in a couple of matches lately, one against OKC and indeed is much better than Green. Not much of an achievement when you consider how bad Green is playing. Not a knock on Brewer but it's not that hard to outplay a player such Green.

    Wilson Chandler is back now playing. He makes Denver a better team. I'd love to see him in a Pacers uni and have voiced my opinion as such. He's a 100 times better than Green at only 2 mil more.

    I'm going to look thru rosters today to see who might be available b4 the TD and in the off season.

    I wonder if Boston would do Rondo+Bass for West+Ian+Hill, Pacers starting unit, Rondo, PG,Danny,Bass and Roy.

    I doubt it because they've got over $60M in Pierce/Garnet over the next 3 years. Also, anybody making over 1 million that we send extra above Hill and West won't work for them without throw-in finagling. It's an interesting prospect though, but they only do this if they could be assured West would sign AND they've soured on Rondo or if they really want to blow it up.

    I'm thinking that they would do it because they want to win now, Pierce and Garnett windows are almost closed.

    That would go against everything that has made us successful. Such a trade would destroy our on the court chemistry, our lockerroom, our 4th quarter productiveness (if any), and, honestly, our chutzpah.

    Why would we ever do so such a trade?

    Amazing how Butler almost got Goran hurt and didn't even get a fragrant foul, SMH.

    They wouldn't because there's no guarantee that West would stay.

    For us... I'm not the biggest Rondo fan at all, or Bass for that matter. I think we get worse now. But there's one side of it that's interesting. If we could find a 3rd team to take Bass and give us an expiring (Clippers/Odom?), add the projected increase in salary cap next summer, we'd probably have enough room to sign someone like Millsap. We get worse now but Rondo-George-Granger-Millsap-Hibbert lineup would be mighty impressive next year.
    But it would be too expensive to keep long term.

    I've been big on this Celtics team for five years and never counted them out, but it looks like they are finally done being contenders in the East. A very impressive five year run that might have resulted in back to back championships if KG didn't get hurt in 2009. They were the best team in the NBA that year and would have won the East like they did in 08 and 10 if KG had been healthy.

    What if KG and Allen had been added in 2005 instead of 2007? There likely would have been multiple rings. From a basketball standpoint, it's a shame that these three guys wasted three vital years of their prime (04-07) on bad teams who couldn't go far. They got together at the tail-end of their primes and it's impressive what they were able to accomplish. The emergence of Rondo certainly helped keep them young.

    The Game 7 loss against the Heat last year will be remembered as the last night of the Pierce/KG era Celtics.

    Yeah I'm on the same boat. I mean I had doubted them in the recent past during the regular season and proved me dead wrong by earning a trip to the finals in 2010 and the ECF last year following a lockout with some old players playing in a crazy schedule. I don't want to rule them out completely but it looks really bad now.

    Yeah I know what you mean. They weren't impressive in the 2010 regular season or last year before the all-star break, but then went on runs and surprised people. For some reason it just feels different now. I'm never going to completely count out a team with Pierce, Rondo, and KG on it, but I'd be surprised if they went on a deep run this year.

    if your system tells you Earl Clark deserves to play more than Pau Gasol it's probably the system is basically what Bill Simmons just said. I totally agree Mike D was a terrible hire from the start I just hate that guys coaching with a passion.

    Howard haven't been able to play next to some power forwards/centers in his career, Bass, Big Baby, Gortat and now Gasol, D'Antoni is not the problem.

    Manu is a poet on the court. San Antonio moving the ball so good. You can tell how this team is well worked that they keep doing it whether they're missing a key player or not. If only we had a fraction of that ball movement.

    So the Pistons are getting crushed by Miami. But Andre Drummond, on back to back possessions, stripped Dwyane Wade of the ball at the top of the key. The 2nd most amazing thing that's happened this game.
